Neighborhood: Maxvorstadt and Schwabing
Overview

This octagonal graveyard was built in 1866-69 by Zenetti in order to take the pressure of the Southern Cemetery, which was slowly filling up. The Nördlicher Friedhof (Northern Cemetery) was used by Catholics and Protestants alike and witnessed its last burial in 1939 – the inn was full! High brick walls surround the grounds and there are arches on the western side; the chapel suffered significant damage during the War. You should definitely have a look at the lavishly decorated gravestones, which mark the resting places of many prominent 19th century Munich citizens. The cemetery is now an oasis of quiet in busy Schwabing.
